The Communities of Practice offer a specialized home within NaBITA to meet the unique needs of particular members’ constituency groups. These Communities facilitate and support the lively exchange of information, offer resources, and allow for ongoing and engaging dialogue to promote the free flow of ideas.

By creating connections with other peers in your Community of Practice, participants have the opportunity to discuss successes and challenges, identify trends and best practices and offer issue-specific guidance, all while breaking down the barriers of isolation in their work.

NaBITA members gain access to a peer community, offering specialized resources and a unique listserv. Your access includes:

  • The best source materials tailored specifically to your Community of Practice
  • A Peer Community discussion group
  • Monthly podcast


Welcome to a newly organized list of resources related to case management and the BIT. A community of practice (COP) is designed to be a collection of individuals interested in a common area of study. As with a cohort model within masters and Doctorate programs, NaBITA’s new COP for case managers is designed to be a community to support the work case managers are tasked with completing.

Violence risk and threat assessment is the process of gathering and analyzing information related to an actual or implied threat or concerning behavior. This is used to weigh risk and protective factors in a fair and equitable manner to establish an objective, evidence-based level of danger with an eye towards reducing bias and establishing intervention strategies to mitigate potential violence to an individual or larger community.

The Safety community of practice brings together individuals tasked with ensuring the safety of their community, whether in law enforcement, K-12, higher education, or workplace setting. This newly formed COP will provide the end-user with a valuable landing zone to come together and access resources, share ideas, learn best practices, and discuss new developments in their fields.
